Eastern Standard (check this!) Fri. March 17th
March 16, 2006 01:31PM

EASTERN STANDARD is a musical entity that is truly unique. Since April 2003 the band has been forging and refining their eclectic and energetic sound to a sharply honed sonic edge. Although the band is relatively young, it's members have well over forty years of collective experience having worked with great musicians & groups like AUGUSTUS PABLO, RAS PIDOW & MODERN ANTIQUE, HUMAN RIGHTS, CULTURE, MIDNITE & DEZARIE amongst others. The band is a paradox of sorts; the music is firmly rooted in the tradition of Niyahbinghi chanting, dub, and roots, rock, reggae yet is expansive and inclusive of other modern and experimental genres as well. The result of this combination is a refreshing, revolutionary blend that captivates the crowd. The music has been described as uplifting, meditative and conscious. Audiences of diverse makeup have been delighting in their distinct sound and dynamic stage show which has caused them to gather an ever increasing following of enthusiastic fans. Perhaps the secret behind this infectious formula is the balance between the heart, mind, and feet. EASTERN STANDARD simultaneously gives the listener something to feel, something to think about and cause to dance. While certain tasteful covers are included in the show, the emphasis is on originality with songs like "Heartical Vibrations", "Shut the door", "Talkin' bout the truth", and "Victory" which are destined to become classics. This talented and multifaceted group is currently based in Atlanta, Georgia. Rest assured that it is only a matter of time before Eastern Standard breaks the boundaries of State lines and national borders to take their sound to people of the world and make a massive mark on the international marketplace of music.
